Tokyo Groove’s repertoire is so extensive that you name it, they play it !
But if you’re not familiar with the band, an idea of their Corporate Set would include classic tracks like My Girl ; September ; (Give Me ) Hope Joanna ; Africa, I Love To Truck, Lady Soul etc as well as popular songs like Sounds Of Freedom ; Sexy Lady and Burn Up through to the bands signature Carribean sound with Hot, Hot Hot, Bob Marley Medley and I’ll Make You Sweat as well as popular local songs from legends like Brenda Fassie, Johnny Clegg and Sipho Hotstix Mabuse.
Tokyo Groove has to be one of the few corporate bands that, when the event and audience require a slightly different feel, they can throw in some jazz numbers and rock tracks including work from artists like The Killers, REM and Nirvana – as well as a stunning acoustic set.
Focusing on the classic party tracks from Motown – to the well-known reggae numbers from Bob Marley to the latest Top 40 Hits from artists like Pharrell Williams & Swedish Mafia and more. The music is always accessible and adapted to suit each event.
The introduction of DJ Groove a few years back, offered clients a complete entertainment package with the option of a Themed Set (African, Jazz, Motown) followed by their standard Party Set and topped off with DJ Groove hitting the decks and taking the party through to the very end!
The seven piece band fills the stage and adds a phenomenal energy to the performance with two female backing vocalists that bring a certain panache to the experience and truly brings the music to life.
Primarily a corporate band, this incredibly dynamic group has been performing at SA’s Top Events since early 2008 and from their sophisticated appearance through to their versatile repertoire and overall professionalism, Tokyo Groove has become a favourite.
